Forging your future with entrepreneurship

You know that entrepreneurs have changed how we live and work on a global scale. But you might be surprised to learn that local entrepreneurs are also changing our region, and potentially the world, in positive ways. Nelson, the CEO and co-founder of BrewFund, will briefly highlight these existing startups, the region’s entrepreneurial growth, the resources available to aspiring entrepreneurs and, in the spirit of our featured speaker, he will bust the “5 myths of entrepreneurship in the Mountain South.”

DAVID NELSON is a serial entrepreneur who has started businesses across the nation, from Silicon Valley to what he calls the upcoming Silicon Mountain South, in his constant pursuit of using technology to bring people together and to the places they love in meaningful ways. His latest venture, BrewFund Inc., provides a loyalty and engagement platform to taprooms across the country.

Nelson also co-founded Startup Tri-Cities, a nonprofit that is working to build a vibrant entrepreneurial community right here at home.
